Causes Of Lung Infection?
Hello, good morning I want to ask if by breathing in aromatherapy such as freshcare, viks, or other inhalation medications can cause lung infections? And what about the symptoms that are caused and what lung infections can attack a teenager? thank you

Respiratory infections can be caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. Respiratory infections are often transmitted through the air or droplets that are airborne in the environment when sneezing, talking, breathing or can also be through direct contact between sufferers and other healthy people. Because of these transmission media, respiratory tract infections are a very contagious disease. Respiratory tract infections can occur in the upper respiratory tract (from the nose to the larynx) and lower respiratory tract (from the bronchi to the lungs)
Wind oil or aromatherapy products do not cause direct airway infections. However, if its use interchangeably with other people, who carry the virus or germ without being known in advance, then the risk of transmission of infection increases.
Respiratory tract infections are easily characterized if there are symptoms of cough, runny nose with or without fever, sore throat, chest pain to difficulty breathing / shortness of breath. Cold cough is generally caused by rotavirus, a type of virus that is easily transmitted when a person's immune system is decreasing and when the weather is not conducive. Viral infections such as colds (coughs, colds), bronchitis, influenza, tonsillitis, laryngitis can heal by themselves as an individual's immune system increases without the use of antiviral drugs. The symptoms are often quite annoying at first and some cases experience quite severe symptoms such as sudden high fever in 2-3 days, painful headaches, excessive coughing until nasal congestion. However, these symptoms can be relieved by drugs that can relieve these symptoms.
However, if it is known that the infection is caused by bacteria, then the treatment requires antibiotics to get rid of germs in the respiratory tract.
Symptoms of bacterial infections are generally more severe since the initial symptoms appear, causing breathing difficulties, such as pneumonia or chronic infections such as tuberculosis. Tonsillitis and laryngitis can also be caused by bacterial infections characterized by sore throat and pain when swallowing.
Physical and supporting examinations such as x-rays and CT scans are routine checks that are often used to assess possible causes.
Respiratory tract infections, both in the bronchi, bronchiole branches to the lungs, caused by viruses or bacteria can affect all kinds of ages, from infants, children, adolescents, adults to the elderly.
The younger the age and the older the sufferer, the symptoms of respiratory tract infections are increasingly non-specific and require deeper evaluation.
Thus the information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
